Sinus/teeth were checked by drs.,are clear,no infection; I am taking huge doses of pain killers. After 6 wks it seems worse.Injector hurt/bruised when press'g on chin where nerves exit jaw. Neuro said likely autoimmune reaction-I will have to ride out.Comments pls?

I am glad that you had your sinuses checked out because that would be one of the things I would consider.  It could be sore or numb from bruising as well or if you have severe pain you should be checked out by your doctor.  Perhaps also it could be a herpes outbreak or neuralgia?

Nerve pain not a known side effect

It seems that you have a neuralgia. Probably there is no causal connection to the Juvederm treatment.

Never have heard of this. Have you or can you report this the the parent company for Juvederm? It would help others. Best of luck and sorry for your [problems. From MIAM I DR. B
